Prime Minister Confirms Brexit Delay

Theresa May, the Prime Minister, has confirmed that there will be a delay to Brexit in what Downing Street has conceded is a “crisis”. The Prime Minister confirmed that it is now too late to leave the European Union with a deal and she will write to the EU to ask for an extension.

The Prime Minister has refused to reveal the date that she is intending to ask for an extension for, but the BBC have said that sources are suggesting that the date will be 30 June 2019, but with the option of a much longer extension as well.
